Living room being the very important space indoors, where we entertain ours friends, guests, relatives, needs to look up to mark. We want it to feel comfortable and at the same time reflect our tastes in interiors. Every pick, from the statement sofas, to wall color, to decor, needs to be given utmost consideration to create one piece of art. Hence, interior trends are a helpful guide for us in transforming the look or simply starting from a scratch.
So let’s get you inspired with some Trending Living Room Ideas which will enhance your home this year!
Beige, White, Ivory, Grey, are all neutral choices for living rooms, but this year is all about being bold and experimenting with fresher looks. Navy blue, dark greens, Mustard, muted pastels are a go-to this season.
Mix of colors have become popular, where darker shades can be used on walls/ floors, with balancing colors achieved via upholstery and accessories.
2. Statement Color
This could be a safe way to start your process of experimenting with Trends this year. If you are new to changes and finding difficulty in adjusting, starting small makes sense.
Adding a bright/ bold color of your choice to a statement furniture piece (Sofa/ Chair/ Pouf), or even decor that blends well with existing ambiance. Also, change in texture and finishes is a good way to start.
This will make your area look interesting and surely change the overall feel it.
Emerald Green, Navy Blue, Hot Pink to Red are gonna be the colors of 2019
Tip: You may start with just a chair or a pouf or even just the cushions to name a few to get the hang of it. 😉
3. More Than One Statement Piece
This is one of the newest trends in a living room design approach, mixing the furniture styles in terms of the look and feel.
Arrangement of mixed style pieces automatically breaks the monotonous living room presentation, and adds interesting form to the space instantly.
This Trend may take some time to really make a space in the hearts of people who are more inclined towards the traditional ways of interiors, but once people starts on experimentation, this is a hit living room trend!
4. Introduce Prints
If bringing in a bold color is a fear for you, I have got you covered. Introduce prints to your selected furniture piece(s) to uplift the basics and bring in the style quotient.
You can go with colors of same family to your existing color scheme or just go with neutral shades to add a visual change.
To take a notch higher you may also select 2 different prints and go by 2:1 ratio (2-Solid, 1-Print), you may feel this to be overboard but I suggest you to try it out. Place 2 printed fabrics of same color family and visualize. The style is trending and would surely be a conversation starter.
Note: Prints can be introduced not only on upholstery, but also walls (wallpapers), floors (carpets), so on.. Check out the #INSPIRIORZ down below 😉
5. Roll out the Carpets
Wooden floors have been loved by us since a long time now, there is still a desire for carpets to create a cozy space. Solid carpets to pattered ones, its time to bring the cozy vibe to our living space year round because, why not?
Carpet instantly gives a very elegant feel to the overall composition, try it out yourself and I am sure you will love it! 🙂
6. Make it Look Cozy
This one is very common and is never off the trending list. Adding throw pillows of different size and texture to your couch or sofa adds overall comfort.
Additionally, you can also have throw blankets to keep you warm during movie nights. I know.. , I have been talking about the same thing on all my articles, because hey! We know it works.. 😉
Tip: Some candles won’t hurt us, would they? 😉
7. Level it up
If space permits, adding levels is a visual treat to a conversation setting. This year the trend of different height-ed center or side table will attract attention of many. It will accessorize your space by placing it closely, so that the levels are slightly overlapping to each other.
This Trend wanted to fit in 2018 but somehow was overlooked and in 2019 this is a gonna be a pleasing to the eye!!
Note: Low height tables can also make great foot stools, adding that extra comfort! 😉
8. Floor Lamps
Yes to floor lamps this season! It can be one piece of art that adds glamour to your space and helps create the right mood for a soft musical night. There is a floor lamp for every style available in the market to choose from. Go ahead and start looking for one that fits in your space, or if you want me to cover some floor lamp choices for you, comment down below!! 🙂
This could be a quick fix for your room. If you feel the setting is alright but missing out on something, it’s definitely Accessories. The new trend of accessorizing has elevated the space from basic to classic. Invest in some really amazing art piece(s) that blends with your style. The decor need not be extremely expensive; It could be something that shows quality and character. This is for the budgeted groups as well, just look around and you will find The Piece for your area. So start looking and investing because, we all want to live in a space that speaks for us, isn’t it ?
Tip: We do not want to overdo the accessories, as crowded space is a No-No! It’s meant to add value not clutter, Just putting it out there .. (Because I LOVE them, and its easy to overdo.. I know it! I have made that mistake earlier and that’s a SECRET! So shusshh.. Hahaha..) 😀
